Do iroquois use rafts boats?
The first boats were rafts, made from anything that would float. That would usually be a couple of tree trunks tied together. In other areas rafts of bamboo or papyrus bundles would have been first. The first real boats were canoes made from bark, kayaks covered by hides, and of course, dugout canoes made from a hollowed out log.
Not sure what you're looking for, but small boats can be "beached." Larger boats are "docked." A specific spot for one's boat can also be referred to as a "slip." Then there are places to tie up while afloat such as mooring buoys, rafts, and of course, you can always drop an anchor. Hope that helps.
